A Summer Read...

Here is another good read.
Every Last One
Just a warning...
It is heartbreaking and intense,
so if you what a light, feel good book
this may not be the book for you.
But, I Loved it!
There are some lines in this book
 that hit my heart so hard.

This is also one of those book that 
you don't want to end.
I really, really wanted to 
know what the future held 
for these people.
I wish that she had  an epilogue
describing them in 20 years.

Let me know if you have read this,
and what you thought.

Happy Reading,
Joyce


P.S. I just found a blog called
Small Things. 
Join her for her party
Yarn Along 


FUN!

Home is a place...

"Home is a place
 you grow up
 wanting to leave, 
and grow old wanting 
to get back to."
John Pearce
How true is this statement?
I no longer have my childhood home
to go back to.
It is still there,
stilled owed by the family,
but no one lives there.
To even think about that house 
makes me so sad.
Sometimes in our lives
we don't realize that the last time
is the last time.
I don't remember the last time that
I was at my parents house
before my Mom became so sick, 
and then my dad...

So...
I feel an Extra Blessing that I 
have my sister's home to go to.
Her wonderful, charming,
warm and loving home
fills that void of a lost
childhood home. 
I LOVE to visit her.
I walk in her back door and
all the troubles of the world
melt away, replaced with
So Much Fun
and
So Much Laughter!
It Fills Me Up!

I am here right now,
filling up with some 
Love From Childhood.
(Miss Sherrie taking "lovely" picture of me.)
All of the pics on here are of
Sherrie's wonderful home.
:)
Visit her at 
A Ruffled Nest
Also, I am linking up with
A Beach Cottage
for
Good Life Wednesdays 
Go and take a look!
Have a wonderful, summery week!

SUNSHINE!!!


You are my sunshine, 
my only sunshine.
You make me happy 
when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, 
how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.



The other night dear, 
as I lay sleeping,
I dreamt I held you in my arms.
When I awoke dear,

 I was mistaken,
So I hung my head down

 and cried.

You are my sunshine,

 my only sunshine.
You make me happy 

when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, 

how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

Hello Blogger Friends!
I realized the other day that I have been 
doing Friday Pretties for over a year-
I have posted 50 plus 
Friday Pretties.
I have decided that, because my life has
suddenly become very busy,
that I am going to take the summer off from
Friday Pretties.
I have enjoyed 
Friday's so much with all of your
PRETTY, PRETTY PRETTIES
and
 I have made so many new friends,
but I feel like the time has come
for a little break.

Thank you all for participating in my little
party every week and sharing your lives
 with me and with each other.
And, hopefully,
I will be back with 
Friday Pretties
in the fall.
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Joyce

Aaaaahhh...What a Life...

BUMBLEBEE 
I was out weeding the other morning.
I stopped to look at a beautiful 
Iris that had just opened.

I was startled to see this 
Big, Fuzzy Bumblebee 
lazing around inside
 of the flower.

He didn't care at all that I was there,
even when I got closer and closer
 to take a picture.
He just kind of lulled around and 
looked at me with not a care in the world.
With that kind of reaction I thought that 
maybe he was spending his last
Big Fuzzy Bumblebee
moments,
his last breaths,
in a place that was like Heaven to him.
I thought-
"What a perfect place for a Bumble Bee to die...
A happy, peaceful place."
So, I walked away to give him his dignity.
I turned to weed some more,
and like a super hero from a cartoon,
off he flew like a shot!
He had  just been throughly and completely
 enjoying his experience inside 
that beautiful Iris-
Can you blame him?
What a Life...
